We've added a new item to our Tie Down systems collection -- ShockStraps. These guys are a very useful tool for those that need to strap items to a car-top rack. They're especially useful for use with items that you want some flex associated with the tie-down such as kayaks and surf boards. They tie down snuggly, but leave flex for when the items catch air, They gently give, without adding undue stress to the item being secured. The loose end of the strap (always a problem â€“ what do you do with it all???) can be gathered under the unique bungie/cord lock (attached) so it wonâ€™t go flapping in the wind.
The ShockStrap will reach up to 5', has a 600 lbs. test carabiner on each end, and will cinch down your load quickly, easily and securely no matter how bumpy the road. The ShockStrap is adjustable from 24" to 60". Just wrap the bungied end of the ShockStrap around any rack (or simply clip it to a D-ring or hook the end of the carabiner to any edge), throw it over your load and clip the other end back around itself.
The ShockStrap is strong (all parts rated to at least 300 lbs.) and goes onto any roof rack or bar system with ease, no matter how big.
